Are Your Thoughts Holding You Back?
Are you struggling with self-confidence? Feeling like your romantic relationship isn't where you want it to be?
Maybe you're dating someone and things just feel "eh" or you're single and looking to find someone you connect with on a deeper level.
Or maybe you just feel like your day-to-day anxiety - wondering if you turned your curling iron off when you left the apartment or second guessing yourself all the time - is getting in the way of you feeling relaxed and happy.
You’ve read self-help books, reached out to friends for support, but you feel like you could be enjoying your life way more.
I’ve been there. I used to second guess myself all the while placing tons of pressure on myself.
PLUS my relationships with friends, family and significant others was impacted by all the pressure I placed on myself. It’s hard to be in your most fulfilling relationships when you’re not prioritizing the relationship with yourself.
I know firsthand what it’s like to feel like you have it so “together” in some ways, but then in other moments feel completed stressed out and anxious. Through the work I’ve done with myself I’ve unpacked these messages of perfectionism and the feeling that you have to constantly strive to be happy.
As a psychotherapist with 10 years experience, I've also helped people navigate funks, transitions from break-ups and discover the careers they feel are their true calling. I also know that it can be incredibly frustrating to KNOW what you want to change about your life, while still feeling stuck. Almost like your thoughts and actions are on repeat.
My approach is all about releasing perfectionism and helping you harness (and trust!) your intuition.
You’ll gain the tools you need to come back to a state of calm and clarity quickly when you’re stressed or overwhelmed.
You’ll also get the chance to tap into your intuition. This is one of my favorite ways to support you in transforming.
Instead of constantly wondering what other people think, you’ll be able to access your own state of inner knowing.
You and I will meet weekly in-person in NYC or via video session for 45-minute, 60-minute or 90-minute sessions. You and I will discuss what works best for you at your first appointment or your first complimentary 15-minute call.
What does it look like?
My approach breaks from traditional talk-only psychotherapy models. How? You’ll receive meditation, visualization and breath work in your personalized sessions. I don’t believe in simply talking about your problems since your mind and body are so connected. You’ll also receive Flower Essences at individual sessions, which can help you achieve your goals faster. Read more about Flower Essences here. They’re similar to essential oils and are completely natural.
Through a holistic approach, you and I will tend to all aspects of your emotional, physical and spiritual health
You’ll get a personalized approach to increasing your confidence, feeling more calm and improving your romantic and personal relationships.
Common Concerns (If you’ve thought any of these things, you’re definitely not alone!)
You WON’T become dependent on me. Instead, you’ll get the tools to make decisions for yourself so you can live a more fulfilling life.
Your sessions won’t look like how therapy can look on TV - talking about the same problem over and over without any resolve.
You’ll also never meet with me for sessions and think, “I don’t know what we’re talking about. Is this even working?” We’ll be really clear on what you want to get out of our work together. And we’ll make strategic adjustments along the way to help you achieve your goals.
I also don’t believe in staying stuck in your past. I believe in treating yourself compassionately, honoring where you are and creating lasting change, whatever that means for you.
I’lll ask you questions, but I’ll also listen. I’ll give you my opinion on certain things, so you won’t just be wondering what I’m thinking. This is my own personal nightmare for a therapist, so I get it!
The relationship you have with yourself is THE most important relationship you have. I know you hear this all the time, but it’s TRUE.
Personal growth is an investment in your well-being and future.
When we first start meeting, we’ll meet for weekly sessions. Why weekly? Because it’ll give you the momentum to create change and build on the things we discuss in our weekly appointments.
I once heard someone explain weekly sessions by saying, “It took you a lifetime to develop into your habits and thoughts, so weekly is what we need to get to work!”
And I agree! I’m all about you getting you the changes you want.
How many sessions will it take? You might want to come in for a batch of six sessions or you might want to come in for 4 months. We'll discuss what works for you and come up with a plan to meet your goals.
This is for you if you’re committed to your personal growth, feeling like you want to create lasting change in your life and feeling like you want to look back a year from now and be over the moon joyful about all the changes in your life.
Remember, when you're taking action to help yourself, it's not a sign of weakness. It's a sign that you have high standards for how you want to live your life and you'll take the necessary steps to make that happen.
What Clients Have Said:
"When I arrived for my first session with Devon, I had no idea how much personal growth lay in store for me. As a young adult, I'd been struggling with boyfriend issues, social anxieties and independent matters. Today my life is much more fulfilling because I learned about self-power and having a positive and free flowing life. I looked forward to speaking with Devon every week! Her shining energy made our relationship and therapy sessions feel super comfortable and I learned so much about myself."
- Brenda, Individual Therapy Client, New York City
"They say everyone takes different amounts of time to process a break-up and heal from heartbreak - I met Devon when I was about 9 months post-relationship. She gave me confidence, helped me forgive my ex and was always there for me as I coped with saying goodbye to his family and friends."
- Individual Therapy Client, New York City
"I felt my authentic voice was heard in a way that felt like I was re-discovering myself. Therapy helped me create more space between my thoughts, feelings and reactions to them. I feel more centered. I feel better prepared to process unpleasant emotions. I am so thankful for everything I learned from Devon and will carry it with me!"
- Individual Therapy Client, New York City
"When waking up in the middle of the night, I would take a few drops of flower essences to calm me down. I also feel more relaxed, which is something I often struggle with. I'm glad that I've finally found something that doesn't make me groggy and plus, it's natural!! I would highly recommend flower essences for those who feel they need to improve how they’re feeling. I'm so grateful for Devon!"
- Director of Account Management Sales, New York City, Flower Essence Client
"Devon is a wonderful person and gifted therapist with very positive and warm energy. She gave me a personalized bottle of flower essences to try. I must say, I was very skeptical at first. I've been taking them for two weeks and I definitely noticed increased energy, more productivity, positive thinking and overall less stress. I would definitely recommend trying this natural remedy that Devon makes with love and care."
